“4 Vicars is a warm smile is the universal language of kindness”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Delighted to find this little diamond of a restaurant on my recent trip to the 7 Hills Blues Festival. Lovely old world charm and fantastic location quiet and scenic with very welcoming and friendly staff. With all that going for you then the food is superb blending flavours fruits and vegetables into lovely meals that nourished us well after our travelling and set us up for the rest of the day.
The staff were extremely friendly and attentive around us with smiles and gestures of appreciation that reflected the overall wonderful team effort going on in this fine restaurant.
The locals are lucky to have the 4 Vicars long may it enjoy success.

“Lovely”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Went for a meal with friends on Saturday evening. Although, the menu is limited - you can choose from 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts - the food is excellent quality and expertly cooked. The complementary wheaten bread was delicious and it's definitely well worth leaving room for a dessert - loved the chocolate cake and icecream!

Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

My Dad took me out for Sunday lunch to this fantastic little restaurant on Vicars Hill. It was fantastic. The atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant, the decor is beautiful and the food was fantastic. It was good value as well - fine dinning without the huge price tag in other restaurants. I would thoroughly recommend it for a lunch with friends or for a special dinner.

“Sublime.”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

My parents and I went out for Sunday lunch here, and were left very satisfied.

First, although not a huge range of food on their Sunday menu, there was no denying how delicious it was. Duck pate was just amazing! Also, a noteworthy point, is that after you order they bring you some lovely wheaten bread to chew on! A nice touch.

Furthermore, the actual restaurant is really nice inside. It's clean and classy, with a hint of Georgian character. We were sat towards the back of the restaurant overlooking a long garden with a small patio at the top, the view was very nice too! The location too is excellent, on Vicar's Hill, close to the centre of Armagh, yet quiet and peaceful. After lunch you can stroll around the Church of Ireland Cathedral, which is a beautiful building.

In addition, although there have been a few complaints of the service, whilst we were there, it wasn't bad at all, certainly not appalling

However, and I know this may seem silly and OTT OCD, but the late was in a cup, not in a tall class as it should be.

On the other hand, many other places (to my dislike) do this, so it's really no big deal. And a three course meal for £18 a head? Well worth it. A must visit.

Reviewed August 3, 2014

my husband and I had a lovely meal here last night, it was a last minute booking, we were unsure as to what to expect, as we had not heard of this place before, and none of our friends had been. The menu was imaginative, my hubby had the crab and spiced pineapple salsa, for starters, it was very fresh and tasty, i had cashell blue, necterine and pecan nut salad, which was so tasty, the main meals did not disappoint either, both flavoursome and beautifully cooked, we were not fit for dessert, but decided to share one, we chose the chocolate cake with homemade praline ice cream, it was heaven on a plate, moist, warm and gooey. We will definately be back.
